Draymond Green Sparked Timberwolves Boycott “Inside the NBA” – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

The Minnesota Timberwolves have taken note of Draymond Green’s criticism of Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert.

Appearing as an analyst on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” show throughout the Western Conference semifinals between the Dallas Mavericks and Timberwolves, Green often criticized Minnesota’s big men, including saying that Gobert was a “barbecue chicken” while defending Mavericks star Luka Dončić and claiming Towns lied about his pregame preparation.

The Timberwolves were unhappy with Green’s remarks and planned to boycott on-court interviews with Green and the panel following their Game 4 win over Dallas, according to The Athletic. Shams Charania reported in his latest column, citing team sources.

“(Anthony) Edwards was surrounded by a tight-knit team, with such strong chemistry that they decided as a group that no player would appear on TNT’s ‘Inside the NBA’ post-game show after their Game 4 win in Dallas, team sources told The Athletic,” Charania wrote.

“The decision was a sign of support for Gobert and Towns, who were the subject of mocking and seemingly personal criticism from panelist and Golden State forward Draymond Green.”

No Timberwolves players will appear on “Inside the NBA” again in the series.

Only because their season immediately ended after an ugly loss in Game 5 on Thursday.
